All About The Himalayas
The Himalayas is one of the biggest and youngest mountain range in the world. It has over 52 mountains and is the home of the great Mount. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world! The height of Mount. Everest is 8,848 km. The Himalayas is home to 300 species of mammals including the snow leopard, the red panda, the black bear and more. The Himalayas are also home to 10,000 species of plant, 977 species of birds and 269 species of plants. The Himalayas are also the source of the major rivers which are known as the Ganga, the Brahmaputra and the Indus which altogether gives water to a billion people. There are also another 35 rivers whose source is the Himalayas.
Human Impact (Bad)
Humans always causes sound which cause avalanches. During avalanches, more than 3500 animals die. Also, many humans go to the Himalayas to kill animals and hunt. Not just that, but humans cut down trees and that makes deforestation. Another thing that humans do is Global Warming, Climate Change, and Landslides kill a lot of animals. And most of the time, a lot of animals experience habitat loss.
Human Impact (Good)
Don’t always think that all humans are bad just for destroying and ecosystem. Some humans like the government are good and want to save the ecosystem. They send out farmers to work there, stop poaching, plant food for the animals, banning hunters, and creating National Parks to make animals have more enjoyment.
Have you heard about the Yeti? Many eyewitnesses said they saw the Yeti. They are known for living in the Himalayas. They are in the dreaded ape man family, which also includes bigfoot. Also, they might be primates.
